Braune and Lusky write: "Robert Garza is scheduled to die on September 19. The state of Texas has not attempted to prove that he killed anyone. When a young Latino male in the Rio Grande Valley - the long-impoverished, southernmost tip of the state - is accused of gang involvement, the question of who actually pulled the trigger does not give pause to Texas' well-oiled killing machine."

We are concerned about a recent drift towards vitriol in the RSN Reader comments section. There is a fine line between moderation and censorship. No one likes a harsh or confrontational forum atmosphere. At the same time everyone wants to be able to express themselves freely. We'll start by encouraging good judgment. If that doesn't work we'll have to ramp up the moderation.

General guidelines: Avoid personal attacks on other forum members; Avoid remarks that are ethnically derogatory; Do not advocate violence, or any illegal activity.

Remember that making the world better begins with responsible action.

Well, well; Tejas does it again, the state that gave you governor Dimwits, he who mocked a woman on TV that he'd just executed, in a whining voiced parody "Oh pleeese don't kill me" after she, like her executioner, had "Accepted Jesus as her saviour" in prison and was a model prisoner, unlike her vapid, incurious, strutting reincarnation of the idiot Mussolini who claimed with a straight face that "God wanted him to be president".
It's not the first time that somebody was silenced by execution in the "Land of the free" -if you can afford a top-notch law firm to keep your nefarious deeds quiet and buy legislators to make them legal.

"Garza contends that he did not participate in shooting the women whose murder has landed him on death row, and that he was not even at the scene of the crim.".

Texas must be a terrible place, with a lot of terrible people. I cannot believe that this is happening in our United States, and that the federal government could not intervene.

Perhaps no one INTENDS to kill, because before there CAN be INTENTION (MALICE AFORETHOUGHT, etc.) there first must be LIFE and those who kill hardly HAVE their LIFE, because, mostly, their LIFE, the pre excuse FOR a life as an INDIVIDUAL with INDIVIDUAL INTENT, HAS THEM, otherwise why the need to BE in a gang, in the first place? In other words, almost ALL humanly designed, humanly generated law (except natuaral "law") is F/LAW and it is F-LAWED! The LAW, all law, especially the "LAW OF PARTIES", attributes PARTY or GANG intent as equal to INDIVIDUAL INTENT. As if a CORPORATION, legally defined as a "PERSON" CAN EVEN BE EXECUTED! lol By all means, TEXAS: on October 19, EXECUTE any and all PARTIES that you can find, execute CORPORATIONS,to o, while you are at it, but allow Robert Garza to live!
